should I even bother?

Postby cleaver596 » Mon Oct 05, 2009 3:58 pm

12 team keeper PPR. 6 points for all TD's. I am now 3-1. and I have been the high scoring team 3 out of our 4 weeks. I'm looking to improve my team, but I'm not sure if I need to make a trade. I have nice depth for bye weeks, but when I have no bye weeks I have to sit someone who could put up some points in either Harrison or Jackson. Neither will be great for the rest of the year, but both will be solid flex plays. I'm wondering with Steve Smith doing an impersonation of Jerry Rice, should I package Smith and Slaton for top RB? The owner of Brees is looking to trade him get some better RB or WR. Should I give up some of my depth to get Brees, or will schaub and flacco be enough? I really like my team and feel good about it. However, I would like to take advantage of the high value of some of my guys.

QB - Schaub
RB - Brown
RB - Slaton
Flex - Fred Jackson
WR-Andre Johnson
WR-Reggie Wayne
WR-Steve Smith NYG
TE - Cooley
DEF- MINN
K - Carney

Bench - Wes Welker, Jerome Harrison, Flacco, Devone Bess, Derrick Ward, Jamaal Charles.

P.S.
When is it safe to drop Ward? That situation sucks and I hate myself for picking him.
I'm the Cleave, so thats what you call me. That, or um, Cleaver, or his Cleaveness, or um, El Cleaverino, if your not into the whole brevity thing.

12 team 1 PPR, 5 bonus points for 100 yard rec. and rushing, and 300 yard passing

QB - eli manning
RB - CJ, Ronnie Brown
Flex - Bradshaw
WR - Fitz, hines ward, Louis Murphy
TE - celek
Def - Texans
K - akers
bench - micheal bush, ricky williams, mcfadden, malcolm floyd, Roy Williams, Mike williams (sea)

I think you're solid at QBs especially with Schuab and Flacco during matchups. I wouldn't even go for Brees.

But a Brown+Jackson might work with a desperate team. You have 4 RB options. Slim it to 3 powerful ones.

I've never done a keeper league though so I don't know how much age factors in.

Trade 2 silver pieces for a piece of Gold.

That's what I am thinking. Now hopefully I can find someone willing to wheel and deal.

I would sit tight. Look, your going to make the playoffs probably. The most important thing for weeks 14-16 is RB depth -- injuries are unpredictable and can knock out dude's who were undefeated in the regular season in the first round.

If anything look at team's playoff schedule and try to pluck off high upside RBs with great schedule -- and avoid any #1 WRs facing the Jets!!!

So I was just offered AP for Wayne and Ronnie Brown. Personally I think that is too much to ask for AP. I know he is the best player in the league, but asking for possibly the number 1 WR and brown, who has been looking real good, is too much. Am I being selfish in not wanting to lose too much? Can I ask for a guy with some upside down the road also? His team looks like this.

QB- warner
RB- Peterson
RB-Addai
Flex- Kevin Smith
WR- Bowe
WR- HOlt
WR- Josh morgan
TE- Winslow

Bench- Avery, Chambers, Eli, Jenkins, Maroney

yeah, obviously his team sucks. I don't even know who I would ask for in addition to AP.
